Liv's Day

Praise be to God for this day!
What a great day it has been!
We heard this evening that Liv's scans are clear!
God is good!

Today was Liv's 19th MRI in nine years. Today was also Liv's FIRST time to have the MRI without being sedated! Over the years, we have tried to get her to do it, but she's been afraid of the "unknown" and always wanted to be sedated. This year was different. After talking to her best friend, Laura, she decided to try it. She did it! No problems at all! Praise God!

Our only bump in the road today was when the nurse hit a valve in Liv's arm during her first attempt to put in the IV needed for the contrast. But Liv did her best to remain calm and breathe.  She's really good at deep breathing and the second IV attempt in her hand was easy.

We are so thankful for today and the wonderful news it brought!
We are also so very thankful for your prayers! They were felt!

Another answered prayer is from yesterday when we brought Elena to Camp Sunshine. At first, she was feeling both excitement and nervousness. After we got to her cabin, we got her unpacked and her bed ready. She meet her counselors and started talking to the girls in her cabin. She became more settled and relaxed. After about an hour, she said we could go. : )

Please keep Elena in your prayers this week - for her physical stamina and for her to enjoy her time away.

Thank you for being with us today in prayer and praise!

In Him,
The Tates
